Getting ready to start my fall plots

I just mowed and sprayed my 2 acre food plot next week I will burn it, I got a secret to controlled burning take big heavy blankets soak them in water if the fire starts going somewhere you don't want burned simply drag the blankets through the fire slowly and it's out.

P.S - Don't use your wife's good blankets she might get real mad.

Smokey says"ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES" be careful

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

ronn, check out the photos. Couldn't get all the big plot done was too wet but made a smaller new one, which worked out for total area to plant. Got to borrow a nice tiller tractor, it was a blast to use. Rain man waited till this morning to start!!!!

Got an update tonight the PA food plots are turning green. I was lucky as it started raining right after the seed was put down. How's everyone elses plots doing? Saw a nice 8 pt tonight in the State park here in Ohio close to my home along with another smaller buck.

PA has been hit with heavy rain since I planted and probably has killed some seed. I won't see the plots again till fall so I have my fingers crossed.

I'll take to much rain instead of no rain any day, cause you can't grow anything without it not even weeds.
